7 months

Happy 7 month birthday Little G, albeit a couple of days late.

This month flew by for all of us and you are continually changing every day. The biggest change in our lives is that you have teeth! About half-way through the month, two little teeth popped through your gums without any notice at all! Daddy was sure you had made it through teething without being the slightest bit cranky or affected by it...but he was sorely mistaken. The few days after those pesky teeth sprouted were pretty painful...for all of us. But you managed to get through it and are back to your happy baby self.

You certainly enjoy shoving everything you can into your mouth which is so funny to watch. But you are also doing other fun things like banging two toys together with your hands and repeating consonant sounds like ma-ma-ma-ma-ma and da-da-da-da-da.

You are still eating like a champ and have enjoyed chomping on all sorts of things from pork-chops to chicken wings and even a steak!

Another thing your daddy and I have noticed lately is that instead of just crying because that's all you know to do, you tend to cry to specifically communicate something. It is pretty cool to see...even though we don't like to put you in situations that cause you to cry at us, we find it really amazing that even without words we are communicating with you.
We are so happy to have experienced another wonderful month filled with love and giggles and squeals. Happy birthday, G.
We love you so very, very much.
Mommy and Daddy


  1. I adore the second to last photo - you can SO tell by the look that he's desperately communicating something to you!

  2. Happy very belated 7-month (soon to be 8-month?) birthday! Wow, you're eating steak! Don't let Eva hear that ;) It sounds like our babies are totally in the same phase- mouthing everything, banging everything together, and saying mamamamama and dadadada... although she would say that nonstop for 3 days straight and hasn't said it for the last week :(
